ELO / shopping aid for the blind


»ELO enables blind people to go shopping individually.«
ELO functions by using the combine information of a shopping list preset by the user and the already existing digital inventory database of the supermarket. With this information, ELO determines the best and safest route for the desired items to be collected by the user. Through integrated cameras and three-dimensional spatial-perception the route is determined, and guides the user via acoustic signals.
